Kids Book Lists

The Kids Book Lists are the best source for quality books written and illustrated for children. 

Perhaps our favorite list is the Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award. Since 1989, children in Illinois have been voting on their favorite books. It's kids picking kids' books! We proudly list all of the Caudill winners since 1989, and we list all of the nominees each year. Be sure to read as many of the books on the nominees' list as possible, so you can vote objectively.

We also display the lists of Caldecott and Newbery winners. Caldecott is illustration-focused, while Newbery is more content-driven. 

Whatever your favorite style of storytelling, our Kids Book Lists are sure to have a few titles to appeal to the kid in you.
